Whether you are driving or taking the S-train, it only takes 20 minutes to get to Copenhagen from Ballerup. Still, the
municipality has a life and identity of its own. It is home to a string of cultural, sports and educational institutions as
well as flourishing local communities and popular new residential areas. There is, in other words, more to the municipality than a prolific business environment,” mayor Jesper Würtzen says. “A lot of people know Ballerup as a powerful business hub, and we are. We are actually, alongside Billund, the municipality in Denmark that has the highest corporate income per citizen.
